Blue Oyster Mushrooms can be harvested from grow kits purchased in the Central Texas area. These mushrooms can be put into coffee blends but are also quite meaty and delicious to eat.
We have a few Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) plants this year. Lavender likes well drained soil so I used small chunks of styrofoam and small pebbles mixed in with the potting soil. Lavender can be used in bath salts, salves, bath teas, oil blends, and can also be diffused for a calming environment. Lavender has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites. Research suggests that it may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness.*
